Actually we have TWO dates to celebrate this month. TODAY, Sunday, June 21st is the 36th anniversary of the first Nu Shooz gig. You read that right. 36 years since that first show in 1979 at Colonel Sumners Park in Portland OR. Yup. We're a summer solstice baby! There were just four band members back then. (It would take another year before the Shoo-horns and I-Lets came on board.)
Also last week, we played Fresno, CA with the Freestyle Explosion Tour. Two years ago in Fresno was our first EVER performance on the tour that has taken us all over the U.S.. Nu Shooz has always had a soft spot for Fresno; friendly people, great crew. It was one of the best shows on the 1986 tour too.
NOW it's on to...
San Jose, CA with the Freestyle Explosion Tour on Friday June 26, and then back to Oregon the next day for a show with the entire 8 piece band on Saturday June 27, at the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts.
We're rackin' up the frequent flier miles!
Hope to see you soon,
Valerie and John
